Most of our engineering related services fall into one of the following areas;

Design

We design a number of different components and assemblies for our clients and pride ourselves in taking on new items and working with clients to meet both their requirements and design intent. Unlike freelance designers, we consider what your goal is and do not just provide the specific results you asked for but consult with you on a diverse set of parameters ranging from material selection to possible simulation and analysis tools to prototyping and mass production methods. Our Design areas of concentration are:

  • Mechanical Design
  • Electrical Design
  • Software Design

Simulation

The tasks we spend most of our time and effort on are fluid-thermal (coupled CFD) simulations. Over the years we have acquired a number of cutting edge tools in this field. Our Simulation areas of concentration are:

Fluid Sumulation

Fluid analysis of a system allows questions related to pressures, velocities, flow rates and similar items to be answered. A flow or fluid simulation is usually performed when a system has hydraulic lines, takes advantage of air cooling, or is in general concerned with its performance from a fluid flow and fluid interaction standpoint.

Thermal Simulation

Thermal analysis can be roughly divided into two categories: thermo dynamics and heat transfer. Thermo Dynamics deals with items such as overall or system performance of air conditioning systems, turbine power plants, heat pumps, etc. Heat Transfer on the other hand deals with the localized effects of thermal energy which can find application in the design and analysis of heat sinks, heat loss in pipes, rate of heating or cooling, heat radiated from hot objects, heat loss (or gain) in buildings and similar items.

Structural / Motion Simulation

The most common types of structural analysis performed are numerical analysis on an existing CAD model where the desired information relates to the part's overall deflection or stress points under a given load and constraint. A simulation like this will require that the attachment point or constraints are known as well as a definition of the loads both by location and magnitude. Loads can be applied over faces of an object, lines/edges or points and will always consist of a magnitude and direction. Constraints on a system are what defines how a part is fixed in space. If the system isn't sufficiently constraint, it can move, therefore invalidating the underlying mathematics. The simplest form of constraint is to fix a face in all six degrees of freedom. This means that that particular face cannot translate in the X,Y or Z direction and is also prohibited from rotation around the X,Y and Z axes. During numerical simulations, these values are explicitly enforced at the points that define the geometry.

Prototyping

In addition to handling almost every aspect of the design side, we offer a limited set of prototyping services. These are mainly tailored towards providing tangible parts from client specified designs but can also be offered on an individual basis for those seeking specific prototyping needs.

Once all aspects of design are taken into consideration, we help you overcome the last hurdle, manufacturing the prototype. Though our in-house manufacturing and prototyping capabilities are limited to 3 axis milling & drilling, turning, welding and some related techniques, we have an extensive list of outside companies that we deal with that can provide the finished part to your specifications. Since we act as the project coordinator on these tasks, we will take care of translating between simple terms and technical terms, making sure that the product in the end meets your requirements. Prototyping does not necessarily mean one-off manufacturing but could be extended to a limited production run so that you can test the market prior to signing up with a large manufacturer for your product.

Our Prototyping areas of concentration are:

  • Mechanical Prototyping
  • Electrical Prototyping
